She wants revenge…
The Dirty Sinners Motorcycle Club is Em Connors’s only family, but she’s ready to risk everything–both her club and her life–for vengeance. Ten months ago, she was brutally attacked and her lover gunned down by a rival gang member. Now, she’s using her position as the Dirty Sinners president to track down the truth and exact her revenge.
He’ll risk it all…
With his partner murdered by a local motorcycle gang, Houston police officer Cade Jackson jumps at the chance to go back undercover and bring down the woman the department calls the Motorcycle Princess. But the sexy-as-hell leader awakens a hunger in Cade. Dark desires run deep–and he intends on teaching Em exactly how dirty he can be. But when his cover is blown, Cade must choose to uphold the law or protect the woman he’s grown to love…by going rogue.
Rebel Love is the first book I have read by Jodi Linton and I liked it enough that I will go back and read more from her! The only thing is..I didn’t completely love this book. It was okay and I enjoyed reading it but it just didn’t scream ‘AMAZING’ to me and here is why.
Em is not as kickass as I would like her to be, it’s like she has all the potential to be a complete and total badass and she just kind of falls flat. She’s still a pretty good character though, so don’t let that put you completely off.
Cade is exactly what I was expecting! ABSOLUTELY no disappointment there, he is an Alpha male and I just LOVE me some Alpha maleness! The relationship didn’t mesh well with me either and that might just be because Em thinks about her dead fiancée a super bunch…but I seriously thought that Cade deserved better. Just saying…
The suspense though is definitely a reason to read this book! It’s pretty obvious who killed her fiancée but the way that Jodi gets you to the end is just great! There were some things that I totally didn’t see coming!
So while it may not be perfect, it’s a pretty good book that deserves to be read by some pretty awesome people, so just give it a chance and see what you think!
*I received a complimentary copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
He patted the motorcycle seat. “Hop on.”
“I’m nobody’s bitch. Especially some outlaw arrogant biker I just hired,” she warned. “What makes you so special that you can skip out on work?”
He chuckled despite himself. “Between you and me, I think the boss lady is sort of sweet on me.”
She stared at the bike seat, not even attempting to make a move.
Waving his ignorance flag, Cade hunched over the handlebars. “You want me to say I’m sorry? That I shouldn’t have kissed you yesterday? Not going to happen, Em. I’m not that good of a man.” He smiled. “One ride, and then I might consider kissing you again.”
“Clingy much?” she ground out.
“Got a rebellious streak, babe.” He slowly slid a glance down her body, knowing his needy feelings to own the heartbreaker biker chick were entirely stupid. But, shit, they were so damn powerful. Risky, even. “When I see something I want, nothing stops me from getting it.”
“You’re awfully confident for a mechanic, aren’t you? Let me remind you about something. Mechanics are a dime a dozen, so if you want to hit the road, you’d be doing us both a favor.” She shifted her weight, hip cocked in a prissy stance. “Hell, I’ll even buy your gas if that means you’ll ride off into the sunset. Like right now.”
She knew exactly the right buttons to push to piss him off. That kiss yesterday had been anything but forced. Yet if he called her bluff, went all Hulk on her, Em would run. Turn her cute button-shaped nose up at him and haul her sexy ass back inside. It probably made sense to apologize and try to get in her good graces, but Cade had never taken the easy route. And gaining Em Connors’s trust would be no different, since he wasn’t about to burn the man code and turn into some Hallmark greeting card guy. Instead he winked and revved the throttle on his bike. “Princess, I can tell you’re dying to know if I can handle this horsepower between my legs.”
REBEL HEAT-Book 2 in the Dirty Sinner’s series- available April 4, 2016
When DEA special agent Abby Harper’s undercover gig is exposed, she’s coerced into letting the Dirty Sinners Motorcycle Club president Logan Black become her new partner in crime. The sexy-as-sin biker might have a panty-melting grin and the best damn inked guns in the big ol’ state of Texas, but there’s no way she’ll buckle under his dimples. She plays by the book, and the badge pinned to her chest is a clear indicator that she’ll never warm a criminal’s sheets.
Logan knows he and Abby mix about as well as mentos and soda, but when he discovers the feisty redhead tending bar at Throttle is an undercover agent—and friend to someone he respects—he sticks his neck out to protect the gorgeous stunner. Easy enough, right?
Abby’s aware that the way the tatted-up bad boy makes her want to cross the line puts more than just her job at risk. Yet Logan has every intention to prove he’s the man for her. No-strings-attached sex will never satisfy him. He wants Abby. And he wants her for good.
